  10. Congrats, Nessy, on your win. We are also happy that you finally made the plunge to digis. Looks like you have been enjoying using them. Also congrats to our Top 3. Thanks for your support! Kathie, thanks for your lovely SSW post. Yes, Christmas will definitely be here too soon for me. I know I have been incognito for about three weeks. My son was just married. The event was to take place in Hong Kong but there were some cliches so the event too place in SLC. We still flew to Hong Kong and had a wonderful week exploring the city! 7 million people in 4.5 square miles. But the city was immaculate. I think I have the desire to explore new horizons now! But I will have to put that on the back burner for now as my time will be spent planning a reception in our area for the lovely bride and groom. And then Christmas will be here. I loved seeing the lovely Christmas cards by our DT. Fabulous creations, Ladies!
